LET GO OF WORKPLACE STRESS WITH MINDFULNESS - 7 EASY TIPS

What is mindfulness at work? 

It is simply being mindful of whatever you do while at work.

It is becoming more common to have mindfulness programs (including Yoga and Meditation) to

the modern work environment.

Benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation include:

*Reducing Stress: We all want to lower our stress levels. We cannot stop stress in our lives and workplaces, however we can change our reaction to stress. When we practice mindfulness it reduces the cortisol in our bodies, which is the stress hormone and allows to cope better with situations as they arise.

*Mindfulness is said to make people more compassionate and empathetic with others.

“One of the reasons mindfulness at work is becoming popular is because we need it more than ever before,” explains clinical psychologist and mindfulness expert Dr Paula Watkins. “Our brains are craving it.”

Here are easy ways to bring mindfulness into your day to day modern work life.

*Taking on a meditation practice.  You don't need to sit for an hour cross legged to gain the benefits of meditation.  Even 5 minutes engaging in a guided meditation can make a huge difference to your mind.  For a FREE 5 minute meditation, download at https://www.heidihorne.com.au/home 

*While at your laptop/work desk, take time to notice your posture.  Are you hunched and tensed, is your face tight and jaw clenched?  What can you let go off?  

*Plan your day ahead.  Set intentions at the beginning of the day for positive outcomes, and how you will deal with any problems that will arise.  Notice your reaction to situations that come up during the day by being mindful of your emotions.

*Practice deep breathing.  When you feel stressed, emotional, tired or tense during the workday, take a few minutes to have some deep breaths.  Try to make the exhale longer and deeper than the inhale, for example - count to 4 slowly on the inhale and count to 8 slowly on the exhale.  Notice the change you feel after doing this, and release any unwanted emotions and thoughts.

*Single task rather than multi-task. We feel like we are more productive when multi-tasking, however switching from 2 or 3 tasks at a time is often ineffective. Spend time on one project (or email) at a time giving it your full attention until completed and then move on.

*Add more gratitude to your day. We often moan and groan about all the negative areas that might be happening in the workplace. Take time to add some gratitude to your day and be thankful of all the positive aspects of your life and job. Even just having a job is a blessing for many people.

*Getting outside even for a few moments. If you can step outside your office and have a few deep breaths in the sunshine. Notice the warmth of the sun and see the beauty in nature around you.

*Connect with people. Take time to talk to others in the workplace with a sense of warmth and openness and really listen.

LET GO OF STRESS WITH A YOGA BALANCE POSE

I love a Balance Yoga Pose, especially when I have a million things in my mind. On the days I am feeling busy and stressed out, it can really help calm that mind and allow me to be in the moment.

They have great practical benefits such as increasing strength and flexibility and working with the core and posture. However, try balancing when you are thinking about the email you forgot to send or what you are cooking for dinner and you will not last very long!

We all know that change is a part of life. One day you are great at dancer pose, the next day you are wobbling all over the place. Balance poses are a great way of checking in with yourself and having an emotional check as well. Good way of letting go of expectations that you put on yourself as well. Remember yoga is all about listening to your body (how it is today, not yesterday) and leaving your ego at the door.

To hold a difficult balance pose, you need to keep your gaze on a certain point and just breathe. This is a good lesson for life as well. Often (especially as women) we love to multi-task and make ourselves super busy. We believe we are getting lots done, however, sometimes we need to STOP and focus on one thing at a time with our full attention. Same goes for our relationships. Put down the phone when we are at the café with a friend, or spend time to look at your child when they are talking to you.

Be still and be in the moment. Your body and mind will thankyou for it.

MY 3 EASY GO-TO SMOOTHIES

 

Smoothies are super popular with everyone in the household, including the kids.  They are quick to make, nutritious and most of all delicious.  Also, unlike juicing they top up your fibre intake as they use the whole fruit or vegetable.  For children, they are great boost of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and proteins.

Our favourite time of the day to have one is mid afternoon when we need a pick-me up and something healthy to keep us going until dinner. Also the children have just gotten home from school, and often on their way to sport training, so this is the energy lift they need.

My tip is to stock the freezer with lots of frozen packets of fruits and vegetables such as pineapple, banana, mango, mixed berries, kale and spinach.  Other ingredients we use include milk (almond for me, cows for the children, coconut), Greek yoghurt, green powders, honey, chia, avocado and LSA (linseed, sunflower and almond). We usually don’t follow a set recipe and add what is available in the fridge. Get the children to have a go of making their own - but clean up the mess afterwards!

If you are starting out, here are 3 easy options to begin with. Just add to a blender and blitz until smooth.

MANGO MAGIC: 1 cup frozen mango, 1 cup yoghurt, top up with 1/2 coconut water 1/2 milk of choice.

COCONUT BERRY - 1 cup frozen berries, 1/2 cup yoghurt, top up with coconut water

KALE PLUS - 1/2 cup frozen kale, 1 cup pineapple (or mango), 1 tablespoon each of green powder and LSA, top up with coconut water

ENJOY! Would love to hear of your favourite go-to smoothies!
